I think Zara was, and possibly still is, a more unusual name than Archie.

The baby's middle name, Harrison, originated in the Middle Ages as a patronymic.

Some people thought that the baby's first name is legally Archibald. However, we know it is not.   
Namely speaking, Archibald Douglas, the 6th Earl of Angus, was the stepfather of King James V of Scotland. Archibald was married to James' mother, Margaret Tudor.

I've been seeing Philip and Alexander on Twitter. I'm wondering if they'll stick with a traditional first name? I can see them coming up with a traditional first name, but using a nickname instead.

Got my doubts on Thomas, but who knows, maybe they'll incorporate it in somewhere.


Bravo QueenE ! It's a nickname of a classic - but rare - name.

It has been speculated that Archie was named after Archibald Campbell, 9th Earl of Argyll.   
Would this Archibald Campbell have been related to John Campbell, 9th Duke of Argyll, who married Princess Louise, the daughter of Queen Victoria?

If I counted right the 9th Duke was the 4x great grandson of the 9th Earl.   The title was “upgraded” for the 9th Earls son in 1701.  And yes the 9th Duke married Princess Louise.  Their marriage was childless and his nephew became the 10th Duke.

I very much doubt that Archie is named after the 9th Earl of Argyll who died over 300 years ago.

If Archie is named after any 'of Argyll' it is more likely to be the present heir apparent to the Duke - Archibald Frederick Campbell, Earl of Morne. This man is also called 'Archie' as a nickname and was a Page of Honour to Her Majesty from 2015-2018, a position his father held in the early 1980s. He is currently 15 years old having been born in 2004.

Whether Harry knows the Argylls well enough to name his son in honour of one of them I have no idea but I suspect he does at least know the young Archie Campbell given his role as Page of Honour to the Queen over the three years he served in that role.

This heir apparent is a direct descendant of Princess Louise's brother-in-law who ended up with the title when his two older brothers, including Louise's husband, died without legitimate issue.

In Beyond Jennifer & Jason, Madison & Montana What to name your baby now by Linda Rosenkrantz and Pamela Redmond Satran, it was stated:   
For boys, plain English and Scottish names are considered Sloane-worthy: Henry, Charles, Peter, Simon, William, Alistair, Archie     
Thus we now know and can conclude that Master Archie's first name is Sloane-worthy!  Jumping Jumping

Just think, it could have been FtzHenry.

Fitz denotes illegitimacy.  Don't think it would work here.
